Abstract

In today′s world businesses function in a marketing environment. The banking industry is no exception. However, the changing world situation always requires bankers to reassess their strategies in order to stay competitive. As part of the banking establishment, bank branch managers play a very important role. This article examines the new roles and functions of bank branch managers through their own experiences in this ever‐changing marketing environment. The research results shed some new light on how to successfully manage these full‐service branch offices in today′s marketing era.

Abstract

Suggests that there are six major dimensions that influence students' attitudes on postgraduate marketing education selections and these are: practical considerations; curriculum requirements; convenience factors; experience with the institutions; academic factors; and admission considerations. Emphasises that with new, progressive business teaching postgraduate marketing programmes sprouting up, the face of European and UK marketing and business schools is changing rapidly. Investigates the attitudes of the major business schools in the UK towards the variables that influence the selection of marketing studies, focusing on finding relationships between dependent variables. Sums up that the expansion of the marketing concept to higher education industry, requires the adaptation and implementation of these findings, in order to improve.

Abstract

Analysis of British consumers′ actual usage of nutrition labels raises critical questions regarding public policy decisions to provide consumers with nutrition information. Multiple Discriminant Analysis reveals that consumers vary significantly in their use of nutrition labels in food choice. On the basis of psychographic and sociodemographic characteristics, three district consumer segments (i.e. heavy users, light users and non‐users) were identified. The results indicate that 55 per cent of British consumers are likely to be non‐users of nutrition labels. Non‐users are less educated, have lower family incomes and can be either younger or older than users. They are oriented to price and bargain rather than quality and nutrition. The implications of these findings for public policy are discussed.

Abstract

New technology has, in the last few years, swept the traditional banking industry in an unprecedented way. “Electronic dreams” of the bankers, once considered impossible, have one by one been realised, and electronic banking has become a major realm of product innovations. New, “cheap” technology has surmounted many technical difficulties concomitant with new products such as ATMS, EFTPoS, home banking and the Smart card, which have changed both customers′ perceptions and marketing practices in the banking industry. The perceptual effects and the impact of new technology and product innovations on bank customers are examined and the strategic implications of these developments are discussed.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION A large number of variables influence the approach of the marketing function to the problem of selling, including the state of technology, the economic environment, the social structure, the climate of the age (political, institutional, religious and educational), available communication media, skills which managers apply and so on. Yet personal selling is by far the major promotional method used to increase profitable sales by offering want satisfactions to markets and customers.

Abstract

The number of cash and carry stores has grown significantly in the UK in recent years. This article presents the results of a survey which was conducted to investigate the shopping habits of customers of such stores, the criteria they use in selecting a store and the relative importance of those criteria. Also examined are the similarities and differences between the traditional customers, namely grocers, and the growing segments of caterers and publicans. The findings of the survey have clear implications for cash and carry businesses in respect of their marketing activities in this increasingly competitive sector.

Abstract

Introduction Operations research, i.e. the application of scientific methodology to operational problems in the search for improved understanding and control, can be said to have started with the application of mathematical tools to military problems of supply bombing and strategy, during the Second World War. Post‐war these tools were applied to business problems, particularly production scheduling, inventory control and physical distribution because of the acute shortages of goods and the numerical aspects of these problems.
